Today I had a yen to draw, not paint. So I was able to do three portraits of Adrian.
The first one, in charcoal, is the best. The second one, in bright colors, gave me a chance to go crazy with oil pastels. It was fun, but the results are only so-so. The third, in pastels, sanguine conte, and pencil, came out okay.
(I don't understand how this blogging program orders the pictures! The first one I posted, the charcoal drawing, came out last when published.)

  1. Rebeca says:In all of them, I like the angularity and sculptural quality of the modeling. Adrian's whole body had this quality and you captured it. The first one has a very well-rendered chest, you accomplished it with very few lines and detail. I suspect you knew which muscles laid underneath!
